My fuel tank on my mk1 1600 eunos roadster has developed a leak, I'm pretty sure on the seam.

I have another tank off what i think is a 1.8 mx5 mk1 are they the same? will it fit? I'll keep my original sender unit, As i presume the 1.8 pump will over fuel.

Also i seem to remember something about the diff to gearbox brace bolts, Is there a technique to getting them out?

Maybe i should do a test one day and run it dry with jerry in the boot.

well i can confirm the tank did fit, and it is bigger, gauge read just over half before swap now its just under. the sender unit was a different depth so i decided that the best plan was to put the 1.8 one in.
all back together after an afternoon of rolling around on my back, the joys of motoring! lol

so a 94 1.8 should be a 48l tank then?

Grr.. i had to peel off a drive-out yesterday as the guage had been on empty for 20min.. and it only took 40l when i filled it up after!!
